The Diary in February

The final diary, one of 30 written since 1895. Wynne is living in Kenya, on a farm in the Trans Nzioa. Life in the Depression is tough, but their coffee is beginning to produce, and so far the locust swarms are staying away.

February 1st – 11th

Life in the Depression is tough and most of the farmers are living on overdrafts. Some are already selling up and leaving.

February 12th – 20th

An aeroplane flying over the house causes great excitement. More schemes are hatched to make ends meet, and the dry weather continues.

February 21st – 28th

More coffee bagged and sent off and the rain starts at last. The first signs of locusts – swarms have been predicted.
